The Letter is J

In Bob's class, one of the assignments is to write a new essay every week. Every Monday, Mrs. Wilson assigns a letter of the alphabet and the topic of the essays have to begin with that letter. This week's letter is "J." For his essay topic, Bob chose his dad, Jeffrey Rosenberg.

Jeffrey Rosenberg

Do you know who is the guitarist in Lavender Diamond? My Dad (a.k.a. Jeffrey Rosenberg)! He has played in a lot of bands.  The bands are from, California, New York, and Rhode Island.

He was born in East Lansing, MI.  He was born on June 21, 1974. He left Lavender Diamond in April 2007 to focus on work and family, but returned to make another record in 2012.  He is currently working as a Technical Director at Hulu.  His wife is Lisa Rosenberg.  

He went to college at Brown University.   His degree was in Biology with a minor in Math.  After school, he went on to become a software developer in San Francisco.

When I asked my dad what his favorite food was, he said, “strawberry rhubarb pie.”  For fun (and exercise), he likes to train for triathlons.  His favorite thing to do with me is play soccer.      

He plays these instruments: guitar, bass, drums, voice, and piano.  He has been active in music for more than 20 years.  I wrote about my dad because I didn’t realize how cool and smart he is!  


  1. That is an excellent essay Bob! I think you are very cool and smart too!

  2. No wonder you leave the math to Mr. Rosenberg!

  3. cool idea by the teacher. cool dad.
    cool story! I wonder if bob will end up being a writer just like his mom? or maybe a musician? or maybe both!
